"Whole Foods Market is one of the best brands on Twitter, and they do an amazing job connecting with and engaging their audience. Every week, they host really fun discussions about food and wine with their followers," said Ashley Routson, beer expert and founder of "For selfish reasons, I felt that craft beer deserved to be thrown into the mix."
